MKII British Combat Helmet, RA Division Insignia a

Helmet has had a considerable service life with paint lose to the top half of the helmet, plenty of patina and a well used liner. The very rough applied dark green paint has been ''slopped'' over the original factory finish, this over paint was applied over a frontal decal to the Leicstershire Yeomanry, this decal can be made out as the sloppy over paint has not adhered propley to the area. To the side is a nice thick painted RA Div sign. The helmet is dated 1938 or 39, the liner has its top pad adrift and held in by a wire, i cannot find a date or makers mark.
